Government Wants To Raise Taxes Despite Record Intake

Published tisdag 8 februari 2005 kl 11.16
Finance Minister Pär Nuder & PM Göran Persson

Despite a record increase in taxes collected the Swedish government wants to once again raise taxes.

In 2004 the amount of taxes collected in Sweden increased by more than US $6 billion, compared to the year before. The largest intake came from private individuals.

Prime Minister Göran Persson and Finance Minister Pär Nuder have both openly spoken of raising taxes, with Nuder referring to a need to increase and improve the welfare system.

The two are not without their critics though, including from with their own party.
